(10/19/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Brown color with a beige head. Aroma of slightly smoked malt, some caramel, some nuts and bready notes. Sweetish flavor with malt, nuts, a bit of smokiness and some toasted bread notes. Medium-bodied. Nice. Has more character than most Brown Ales.

Draft - part of sampler at brewery. Pours a med-to-dark brown color with a nice creamy, off=white head. Aroma is roasted malts and a hint of semi-dark chocolate. Flavor is mostly the roasted malts, with a slight balancing with some mild hops and a little sweetness from the chocolate notes. Medium bodied. Rather drinkable.

Pours just short of opaque. Nose is woody. Flavor is whoa! Nice and hearty. Woody character. Thick robustness that is nowhere near overdone. Slight bitter back tone. Feel is thick enough on the liquid. Has a good level of carbonation. Very drinkable. A good brown ale. If you see it, go for it.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft-Nodding Head Center City Philadelphia. Dark Brown ale, came highly recommended but not a big fan. It does have a slight chocolate/earthy flavor but overall nothing overwhelming and not enjoyable to me when it was serviced lukewarm. Its still better than Monkey Knife fight...
